None of the apartments are air-conditioned, none have telephones and some do not have washing machines. All apartments are within walking distance of the school (maximum 20 minute walk). Landlords provide Internet in their apartments, however, please note that Internet in Florence is not flawless and SRISA is not responsible for its functionality.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON APARTMENTS:
Most rooms in Florentine apartments are double occupancy in 4-6 person shared apartments. We cannot guarantee any student a single room. Those students that request a double occupancy room will not, in any case, be charged for a single room. Those that pay for single occupancy and are subsequently placed in a double occupancy room will be refunded the difference by U.S. check.

RENTAL PERIOD FOR SHARED AND PRIVATE APARTMENTS:
Students will not have access to apartments before or after the established housing check-in and check-out dates.

ARRIVAL IN FLORENCE: 
Approximately 1 month before you arrival you will receive an email with your housing assignment and arrival information informing you to take a taxi either to your apartment or to the school for check-in.  A SRISA Staff member will be available for check-in assistance.

IMPORTANT!! 
Check-in to the SRISA apartments is available Monday through Friday from 10am to 6pm during the semester terms and 12noon to 7pm during the summer terms. 

Those arriving over the weekend or after 7pm must make their own arrangements to stay in a hotel. You must notify us of your arrival time and date by e-mail at 
housing@srisa.org

We recommend when booking your flight that you arrive directly in Florence as the cost of transportation from another city may be more costly.
